Quarter: Winter 2019
Grade: A+
April 18, 2019

This class is incredibly different from her Political Science courses. Her PoliSci courses involve an exam and two-part final paper, meanwhile this class is based off of one group presentation and one final paper. The topics covered in class are very interesting and her lectures are very informative. Unfortunately, much of the class is devoted to said group presentations. Groups of 3-5 students give their presentations for nearly the entire two hour session, one group presenting each session. Usually there would have been a few more days devoted to her lecturing, but she was sick and had scheduled absences so the majority of class was student-led. These presentations were great at times but have the downside of sort of becoming book reports after a while rather than spending two hours talking about the key concepts of the book.
It is easier than her other classes work-wise in that you read one book with your group to present on and two much shorter books that give context to the class as a whole, along with a course reader. The presentation groups provide notes on their presentations and books that can be used in the final paper. I found that I did the least reading in this class out of the three classes of hers I’ve taken in this one, and felt the least stressed about it over all. I highly recommend taking this class if you want to seriously delve into a topic in privacy and security, but honestly you only get out of this class what you get into it - if you zone out you can still do fairly well but you won’t actually learn any of the incredibly relevant information discussed.
